My husband and I just returned from a very nice stay at the Four Seasons in Costa Rica. The staff of the Four Seasons made our stay. Anytime we had a concern about our room or needed anything, they responded within minutes with a willingness to help. The concierge was also very attentive - they bent over backwards to make sure you got the tee time you wanted and were more than willing to help with daytrips outside of the resort.
Rooms - Very nice views of the bay/ocean. The retractable screens on each balcony were a great idea. You could hear the waves from your room. I've read complaints in other reviews about the beds, but our bed was very comfortable. (We had a fourth floor room.)
Golf and Tennis - Outstanding golf course with a friendly staff and amazing views. My husband played golf and I just tagged along. It was well worth the views and they did not charge for me to go with him. Tennis was also very good! We seemed to have the golf and tennis to ourselves. Same at the spa, and the hotel was supposedly 70% full.
Diving - The diving at this location was not ideal because of the visibility, but the dive staff was safe, attentive and knowledgable. We saw two white tip sharks and a school of eagle rays - if only the visibility had been better, I'm sure we would have seen more. (15-20 ft. visibility)
Spa and fitness center - Superb! Excellent staff, beautiful facilities and good equipment.
Food - The buffet breakfast at Papagayo was our personal favorite! Tico's Bar is also good for snacks/dinner. Di Mare - good, but not great. Papagayo for dinner - good, but not great.
Activities close to the hotel - Definitely try the zip lines in the canopy at Witches Rock - just a 3 hour excursion and only a twenty minute drive from the resort.
Our only negative - Swiss Travel Tours - we did a day trip with this company and I imagine it was just bad luck for us or a bad day for our guide. He just wasn't a happy guy. The rainforest preserve was beautiful that we visited, however.
Overall - a great vacation and the staff of the Four Seasons made the stay a memorable one! I would highly recommend this resort if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing trip. I'd go back just for the excellent service, spa and breakfast!!
